The infidels should learn from Indian History

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]

Submitted by Vinodgupt (United States), Sep 22, 2006 at 18:02

Not many are aware of Muslim invasions of India -- not many Indians themselves. Most believe that Muhmmad bin Kasim's invasion of Sind was the first Arab invasion of India -- not so. The first Arab expedition against India was sent by Second Caliph Omar in 636 CE which was defeated. From then on till 712 CE till they succeeded -- this is another story which I will relate some time in the future -- there were sixteen more attempts in between the two. Islam has patience. The infidels -- I use the word infidels -- because Islam recognizes only two categories -- momins and kafirs -- have to fully understand Islam. Most infidels get thier knowledge of Islam from media either electronic or written. In the culture of PC either is not going to write or show any thing, however true, that Muslims will not like specially after they have seen what happens if they do -- aka Salman Rushdie, Van Gogh, ..... to cut long story short ,.. and now the Pope.

So what is to be done -- every kafir must get first hand knowledge. He should make a list of what he believes how a peaceful and tolerant religion should be and then read the Koran himslef if it comes true on that scale. Don't believe any commentator -- Muslim or non-Muslim. Intelligent people should make their own judgements.
